Adoption - Is through Christ
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
